Fighting Forces Vietnam

Fighting Forces Vietnam is the most comprehensive documentary series ever produced about the military units deployed in the Vietnam War, the largest war in U.S. history. Altogether, 140 Army, Navy, Air Force and Marine units from the United States, Australia, New Zealand, Korea and the Philippines are discussed. This extraordinary series, produced with the official cooperation of the U.S. Army and U.S. National Archives, features 12 hours of rare, recently declassified film footage, making this the ultimate Vietnam War collection. This series was written and produced by Edward Rasen, who serviced with the U.S. Army in Vietnam from July 1965 to February 1968. Rasen was a combat infantryman and Long Range Recon team leader who was awarded the Combat Infantryman Badge (CIB), Bronze Star for valor and Purple Heart for combat wounds. Subsequently, he worked in Vietnam and Cambodia as a producer for ABC News.
